A Mexican favorite, the michelada is a simple way to make a cheap Mexican beer into a delicious drink that will quickly become a party favorite. I recommend a cheap Mexican beer such as Modelo® or Tecate® for best taste and to stay true to the michelada concept. Best served at a Mexican food barbecue alongside fajitas, Mexican rice, guacamole, salsa, and so on with family and friends!

I really like micheladas they are so refreshing on hot Texas days! My friend likes Clamato in hers however I am not a fan of its fishy taste. You can substitute with Spicy V8 juice or Bloody Mary mix or leave it out completely. If Maggi sauce is available where you live try adding a dash or two to your drink. Cheers! Read More

I tried to make this for 1 beer & I used 1 1/2 tbsp of the Orange juice concentrate. I thought it was Too sweet & took away from the other flavors. whenever I have a party large enough to serve 24 beers I'll review again. Read More

These were by far the most tasty micheladas I've EVER had. I'm not a great fan of a lot of tomato in my drinks and this one has the right combination of orange lime tomato and spice. Loved it! Read More
